"hello" Eleanor! When I met her at a party last year we instantly started to chat away about our blogs (creative times & creative cookie) and we've been friends since:). Eleanor's blog is fun and focuses on the arts, entrepreneurship, Muppets, and music -- check out Creative Times and follow her @creativetimes!
We're moving to a new place soon (ummm, like this week) and I'm a wee bit stressed. Planning, packing + keeping everything afloat is proving to be a challenge. This morning while seeking motivation I came across this image from SARK (one of my favorite authors). I'm going to let this message guide me as I wiggle through this exciting change.
Print it and let it guide you too:). Happy Monday!
My face brightened up when I received a surprise assortment of happily printed fabrics earlier this week from textile designer & author Jennifer Paganelli!
Okay, here's a short story...
My friend Erika called last October and mentioned that she picked up sewing book [for me] called 'Girls' World' that I might like. She was right! After receiving it I began using it for fashion instruction. The book is brimming with fanciful sewing and craft projects that are adorable.
Ok, let's fast forward to this months' DIYBA (DIY Business Association) tweet up. When I saw Jennifer's handle appear in the chat timeline, @sisbom, I had to introduce myself. We scheduled a Monday afternoon phone date, quickly discovered things we had in common, and decided it would be smart to stay connected.
On Wednesday (as I was rushing out the door) I stumbled over a fat package that had been delivered with Jennifer's name listed as the sender. After opening I was moved because:
1) the designs for spring are lovely,
2) sewing will be fun with the patterns + fabrics by Jennifer, AND
3) a sweet gesture enabled me to spark creativity and expand my network.
It's a colorful reminder of the ripple effects of our actions. Good, leads to good, leads to more good!
I'll be co-hosting TranquiliT's Spring launch with Julia Coney this Saturday (3/17) at Tranquil Space in DuPont Circle:). So, to all my friends & family in DC come out and see me, new designs, colors + vintage finds (we'll also have tea & yummy treats)! Hope to see you there. Love me in TranquiliT...
